Shredding that I like (warning, potentially “weird” content!)

09 Feb Shredding that I like (warning, potentially “weird” content!)

Okay, now that I warned you, you will watch – that is, if you want – a Pink (yes, Pink!) live concert from 2009, a Led Zeppelin’s cover though (still in classic rock territory).

That is, “Baby I’m gonna leave you”.

I promise you, it shouldn’t waste 5 minutes of your life.

Besides being impressed with Pink’s own voice skills – really am – the guitar player there impressed me. I like this guy: Justin Derrico.


Then, digging more into Mr. Derrico’s playing,


And playing Guitar Rig with Pink’s live band:


If you like him, his sound and style (you may, since it’s rooted into classic rock, evidently) please pay attention to his hands, he “shreds” but at the same time, this young player still has plenty of feeling and great timing. Now, if these were to be the new generation of guitar players, I’d be content and satisfied.

Enjoy, hopefully

    He is really good on that Les Paul device ! And Pink delivered a great vocal cover, she is very good too. Another band that is into Rock/Hard Rock and I consider really excellent are TESLA: they always use Gibson guitars and Marshall and they have a great tone in my opinion. Singer Jeff Keith is awesome, really the new Steven Tyler or even better in my opinion, and the blonde Frank Hannon on lead guitar really knows how to make singing a Gibson guitar as well. Take a look at this nice cover of “Thank You” by Led Zeppelin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiU1lV4YGUU

    Yeah. A lot of feeling in his playing. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Although I’m not a big fan of shreding, I really must say he really “got it”. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Another player that I really admire is Randy Rhoads (RIP). He could shred like no one else and still play with a lot of feeling and timing ๐Ÿ˜›

    I don’t know, I didn’t really like it =\

    His playing is technically good, but to me it is just random notes. The second video is good though, I’m digging that one.

    The only real “shredder” I like is Eddie Van Halen, and that’s only the first album. Of course by shred, I’m talking about things like harmonics, whammy bar effects, sweep picking etc, not just playing fast.

    I read a quote saying that “the more notes you play, the less value each of those notes have”. I keep that in mind when improvising or composing a solo. (Of course, I still can’t help the fast pentatonic runs up and down the neck!) It’s really hard playing something fast, and something slow. I just fear becoming a mindless shred ‘zombie’, who attempts to put every single flashy trick they can do into a solo. Don’t get me wrong, I like fast stuff, e.g. Eric Johnson’s “Cliffs of Dover”, John Petrucci’s “Glasgow Kiss”, but I prefer the classic rock stylings, (e.g. Angus Young “Let There Be Rock”-era and Stevie Ray Vaughan), rather than the new-age fast playing/shred.

    Sorry for this long winded speech that went off topic, lol, but I just felt like posting a comment out there, so you can agree or disagree with me. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, I enjoyed this very much. Maybe its just the wah or something, but he does have a sort of controlled Slash vibe to his playing.

    Thanks for sharing

    They’re kind of modern rock, but with loads of classic rock style influences.
